Youth Accounts Carolina Trust Youth Accounts So what is Goal Club anyway? Let your money make money! What else should I know? A fun way for kids and teens age 17 and younger to learn financial responsibility, practice good savings habits, and save for their future. It’s called dividends, and it’s like interest earned on savings. You save your money at Carolina Trust in your Goal Club account, and we’ll pay you to keep your money safe and secure. When you open your Goal Club account, you’ll receive a free gift. And no, it’s not a toaster – it’s something cool you’ll actually want! Financial Education Resources Every three months or so, you’ll receive a Goal Club newsletter with articles about saving, money management, trivia, fun facts, and more. You’ll want to brush up on your financial education because one day, you’ll need to be ready for financial independence. Trust us, you’ll be paying bills before you know it – just ask your parents.

A parent or guardian must co-sign on any minor account (younger than 18). Please bring the completed form to a Carolina Trust branch so we can open your account and give you your free gift. There is a membership fee of $5. It’s only a one-time fee, and it’s good for the life of your account. The minimum balance required to open a Goal Club savings account and earn dividends is $25. It remains untouched while your account remains open, but we know you’ll be saving much more than $25!
